Jack Antonoff is showing his appreciation for his longtime friend and musical collaborator Taylor Swift after the release of the artist’s 11th studio album, The Tortured Poets Department on April 19.

The record producer and Bleachers frontman used social media to praise Swift, sharing his "love" for her, the record and their fans as well as revealing how he was feeling after the release of her latest album.

"love this album more than i can say .... love you all very much ... more later very overwhelmed ... love you taylor," he posted on X (formerly Twitter) in the early hours of Friday.

In two other tweets, he appeared to shout out tracks (and the fans who would be listening) on the album, writing, "!! FOTS heads lets go !!" — seemingly a nod to the track "Fresh Out the Slammer," — in one and "down bad heads as well" in another — referring to the song "Down Bad."

Antonoff, 40, is credited as a producer on The Tortured Poets Department. The album includes 16 standard songs, as well as features from Post Malone and Florence + The Machine on two separate tracks.

Later in the day on April 19, Antonoff posted to his Instagram to share some candid photos from the making of the album. as well as a caption announcing, "TTPD is here."

"My favorite work we have made together / made in the most wild unhinged moment. all the pain distilled in this album and all the laughter that came out of it. will hold those days in the studio forever as the most inspiring of my life. i adore this album and the way it came together," he wrote.

In March, Antonoff praised Swift's songwriting skills while speaking to the Los Angeles Times, saying that questioning her aptitude is "like challenging someone’s faith in God. You just don’t go there."

Swift and her boyfriend, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, were spotted in the crowd at Coachella last week at Antonoff’s set for his rock band Bleachers. Bleachers’ drummer Sean Hutchinson also shared snaps of the couple hanging out with other members of the band backstage during the festival on Instagram.
